I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open in new window

That'll leave you with access to everything you got out of AD via the Group property.

I strongly advise you limit the property set though, in-memory comparison using either of the methods above is going to hit it hard if you have even a moderate sized directory.

There are other ways so do yell if either Justin's or this suggestion isn't sufficient.
